Rob, just curious is your opinion of the X100 based on internet chatter or actual experience?
FWIW, I had an X100 for about 4 months last year. The MF was atrocious as you say but the reason was because of its fly by wire nature combined with requiring too many turns to move from MFD to infinity. Crappy MF is sadly a property shared by most (if not all) AF lens oriented systems. The most notable exceptions are the rangefinder system in the Leica M and focus peaking on bodies like the NEX when used with MF lenses.
As for the locking up issues, in the 4 months I had the camera, I didn't experience as single lockup, so I have to wonder how much of it is the internet fora amplification effect.
Oh and I should add, I got the X100 because I couldn't swing an M9 and with a 35 and I sold the X100 because as soon as I got the M9 and 35 'lux I rarely ever used the X100.
